Symptoms of Oral Candidiasis

Candida infections of the mouth and throat can manifest in a variety of ways. The most common symptom of oral thrush is white patches or plaques on the tongue and other oral mucous membranes. Other symptoms include:

  • Redness or soreness in the affected areas
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Cracking at the corners of the mouth (angular cheilitis)

It is important to see your doctor if you have any of these symptoms.
